Proposed Farm Plan
Nestled between dormitories, sports arenas and classroom buildings, the campus farm serves as a constant nostalgic nod to the University of Maryland’s roots as an agricultural college. Now, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR) is embarking on a bold mission to turn the unique piece of property into a teaching facility for the future. Proposed improvements include expanding and renovating current structures, creating indoor teaching spaces, streamlining the layout to more efficiently move animals throughout the site, improving accessibility and increasing the farm’s visibility on campus – all while preserving its bucolic charm.
The College of AGNR is currently in the process of securing funding to make its dynamic vision for the campus farm a reality. In a show of confidence and enthusiasm for the project, Dean Cheng-i Wei announced the College will match any monetary gift donated specifically toward revitalizing the campus farm.
